Reviews

"Contains Ashbery's greatest work and confirms his position as one of America's finest poets since Wallace Stevens." --Edward Guerschi, Newsday

"Mr. Ashbery remains one of his generation's most gifted and eloquent poets . . . He writes persuasively--and movingly--of the poetic process, of the attempts of the artist to wring order out of chaos." --Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

"No other poet is as daring . . . None inhabits such a Versailles of the imagination. This formidable new volume offers the finest of his oeuvre." --Carolyn Forche, Vanity Fair
